DIY Eye Depuffer
From Rosario Gonzalez of the Alchimie Forever Spa, in Washington, D.C., comes this trick to help brighten and tighten the skin’s appearance around your eyes temporarily: You’ll need 2 bags of green tea, steeped and slit open at the top; grated cucumber; and 1 snack-size bag filled with frozen peas. (1) Stuff ½ teaspoon of cucumber into each tea bag, then place a bag over each eye. (2) Lay the bag of frozen peas across both eyes. (3) Remove after 10 minutes. The brew is high in antioxidants; the chilled peas reduce puffiness.
A thing of beauty should be a joy forever—or at least until five o’clock. Here’s how to stretch the life of your makeup, hair, manicure, perfume—and more.
